I don’t understand why California would do this. Their EVs will almost always go to a Democrat. This makes it possible for a Republican to win them all. It makes no sense, since California is completely dominated by Democrats.
We are such dorks here in CA....pathetic.
Typical lib stepping on their own crank. They just put CA in play for the GOP. There’s no need for the GOP pres candidate in CA, all she or he has to do is do well in the other states and CA’s electoral votes will give the GOP the WH.
Because it makes it easier for them to get the total needed to cause the other states who have passed the law to activate.
It makes it so that if California lets illegals vote, by not protecting their ballot boxes, they can overwhelm the popular vote. It won’t help unless they trick enough small states into joining though. Can’t imagine a small state going for this.
No, it doesn’t make sense. Their state could go overwhelmingly Rat (as it has done since 1988) and a Republican would be awarded their EC votes.
That's what they want and this move moves us toward that foolish vision.
Completely agree. This could only benefit the Republican. What a bunch of idiots.
“I dont understand why California would do this. Their EVs will almost always go to a Democrat. This makes it possible for a Republican to win them all. It makes no sense, since California is completely dominated by Democrats.”
Cause Democrat and leftist issues are more likely to win in a popular vote presidential election.
Because in a popular vote presidential election presidents don’t need to pay attention to the more rural, they can instead focus on issues that are more uniquely appealing to urban populations. Issues that tend to be large more repressive goverment.
By joining the ranks of States looking to overturn the electoral cottage California makes it more likely other states will join her and eventually this leftist dream will become a piratical reality.
The only good news is its not necessarily a permanent development, sooner or later a state is going to realize how its not being represented and break ranks. The left are hoping by the time that happens the population will be so shocked by the development that they would be willing to pass a Constitutional amendment abolishing the collage.
